    omeomy #2's Note:

    Zatarains was the real thing and boxes of it were found in just about every home in New Orleans. We also like to add 2-3 lemons, quartered, to the water. This is enough for 5lbs shrimp or a dozen blue swimmers.

      Wow! I'd never heard of a crab boil mix until it asked for it in a shrimp cocktail recipe. Who knew this was the real Cajun way to prepare shrimp? Very tasty stuff. Thank you for posting your recipe and saving me a trip to the store.

      This is a great blend! Can't get the Zatarain's brand here, and this was just as good! Adding it to my recipe box! Thanks for posting!
